What is Pilates?
Want to achieve greater strength, balance and flexibility? Tone & sculpt your body?
Pilates is a body conditioning system that helps build flexibility and long, lean muscles, strength and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, hips, and back. It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, as well as breathing to relieve stress and allow adequate oxygen flow to muscles. Pilates develops a strong core (tones abdominals while strengthening the back), and improves coordination and balance. Pilates' system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginner to advanced. Intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises. No muscle group is under or over trained. It enhances core strength and brings increased reach, flexibility, sure-footedness and agility.
Pilates can be practiced on a mat, with or without the use of a large variety of props , apparatuses and even machines. Among them, The Reformer machine is the most popular.
